A new trailer has been released for Straight Line Crazy starring Ralph Fiennes ahead of a planned broadcast via NT Live.
Broadcast live from the Bridge Theatre on 23 May 2022 to cinemas in the UK, Ralph Fiennes (Grand Budapest Hotel, Schindler’s List, Harry Potter series, Bond series) plays Robert Moses, master manipulator and town planner extraordinaire in the powerhouse new play from David Hare (Skylight).
The new play covers Moses’ 40 year reign over New York town planning; manipulating everyone around him, including government and politicians, through a mix of guile, charm and intimidation. In his 5-star review for the Guardian, Mark Lawson said “Ralph Fiennes enthrals as the man who shaped New York” .
Joining Ralph Fiennes in the play are Alisha Bailey (Mariah Heller), Samuel Barnett (Ariel Porter), David Bromley (Stamford Fergus), Al Coppola (Walter McQuade), Siobhán Cullen (Finnuala Connell), Ian Kirkby (Lewis Mumford), Alana Maria (Shirley Hayes), Dani Moseley (Carol Ames), Guy Paul (Henry Vanderbilt), Helen Schlesinger (Jane Jacobs), Mary Stillwaggon Stewart (Nicole Sawyer) and Danny Webb (Governor Al Smith).
Straight Line Crazy runs at the Bridge Theatre until 18 June 2022.
